I disagree about how much mud was slung and how much clinton put on himself. Clinton was accused of rape (and a lot of other things). Congress had a responsibility to act. The conviction had bipartisan support. The democrats just make accusations in the hope that they stick. The only reason they make the accusations at all is because Kerry is indefensible. Have any of their charges been proven true? Blood for Oil? Nope Draft? Nope Burn Churches? Nope Ban Abortion? Nope The most controversial thing he has done, domestically, is introduce the idea of a marriage ammendment, which is supported, in principal, by 80% of America. In fact he hasnt vetoed anything, even what the dems passed when they controlled the Senate. He has gone out of his way to negotiate a comprimise with the democrats, without violating his principals, on every issue but never gets credit for it. But why am I defending Bush again? Why dont you defend Kerry?
